Pomona’s Universal Pectin is a unique pectin in the marketplace because it jells well with low amounts of any sweetener. It is different from other pectin because its jelling power is activated by calcium (included with the Pomona’s), not by sugar content. It also is different because it contains no sugar or preservatives — it is 100-percent citrus pectin — and because it allows jam makers to double or triple batches as well as to make small batches.

Jam makers love it because it gives them complete control and allows for lots of creativity. Finally, one box makes two to four batches. All of this makes Pomona perfect for low-sugar jam recipes. Canners will likely fall in love with Pomona’s Universal Pectin once they are introduced to it, understand its powers, and taste healthy, homemade jam undiluted by large amounts of added sugar.

LOW-SUGAR JAM RECIPES USING POMONA'S UNIVERSAL PECTIN:

More recipes can be found on the recipe/direction sheet that comes with the pectin, as well as on Pomona’s website.
